  • INTRO
  • Today we are going to work in groups.The goal of today is to be able to understand, utilize, and create an online fundraiising strategy-Building up to this we will be going through the steps to creating this strategy and activities after each step
  • Tell story of founders: Our historyIn 1997, World Bank executives Mari Kuraishi and Dennis Whittle were asked to develop innovative ways to combat poverty. They created the World Bank's Development Marketplace, a first-of-its-kind event where people from around the world competed for World Bank funds. The event's success unveiled the enormous potential of a global marketplace for philanthropy, and participants asked for a real marketplace that was open year round and operated virtually. Mari and Dennis saw the brilliance of this idea, left the World Bank and launched GlobalGiving.Our Vision: Unleash the potential of people around the world to make positive change happen.WHAT DO WE DO? Connect people who are doing good things with donors who can support them.HOW DO WE DO IT? GlobalGiving provides an online space where you can pitch your work to people across the world and interact with donors. (We also provide a lot more! You’ll hear about it later.)
  • About Global Giving Slide:Who am I and why am I here?What is GlobalGiving?A website that helps organizations raise money to help their communities.We offer organizations a unique set of online tools, strategic support, and the opportunity to connect with our vast network of individual donors and corporate sponsors.We make it easy for you to receive donations from your donors, family, and friends by providing you with project pages where you post your organization’s needs, plans, photos, and fundraising goals.
  • In groups discuss 5 minutes --- part 3 clarify foundations, online, individ donorsAsk for what brought everyone to workshop/what hope to get out of workshop
  • http://www.nonprofitmarketingblog.com/site/giving_up_for_2011_nonprofit_personality_still_pays_off_online/Online fundraising is not magic! It is just another option for fundraising, we see value in diversifying sources of fundraising, this should not replace other fundraising activities. Focusing on the top number – giving via onlne fundraising has increased 17%PJ Staff Report. "Online Giving Grows." Philanthropy Journal. 21 Feb. 2011. <http://www.philanthropyjournal.org/news/online-giving-grows>.Steve MacLaughlin. "Blackbaud Index for November 2010." Philanthropy Journal. 18 Jan. 2011. http://www.nptrends.com/nonprofit-trends/blackbaud-index-for-november-2010.htm>.
  • Overall giving remained flat in 2010, online giving rose by 8.7%. Only 9.3% of Grants are awarded to international organizationsPJ Staff Report. "Online Giving Grows." Philanthropy Journal. 21 Feb. 2011. <http://www.philanthropyjournal.org/news/online-giving-grows>.Steve MacLaughlin. "Blackbaud Index for November 2010."

  • BUT simply having internet doesn’t mean you will make $ online. Here are a few steps you can take to make your online fundraising more profitable…
  • Expanding Donor NetworksSo here is you and your networksSHARE RED CAMPAIGN STORY
  • Ask each group how many people they could reach.. Choose largest and ask howIdeas: Draw a tree/circlesUse this to create a mailing list
  • Use this to create a mailing list
  • Still part of identifying networks ONLY GET VOLUNTEERS IF FITS YOUR ORGANIZATION – YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL TO DESIGNATE ROLES, PROTOCOLS, INTERACITON WITH BENEFICIARIES, BACKGROUND CHECKS, THEN DEVELOP
  • You don’t ask people for money as soon as you meet them in person, and it is no different online. If you build a large base of people AWARE of your organization/projects, then you must foster relationships with them that result in donations!They key to discovering HOW to get people to give is realizing WHY people give…
  • 5 minutes in group, then share
  • Why would anyone want to give to your organization? Why do people donate to your organization?Best Practices of CommunicationWhy do people give? Because people they know and trust ask them to give.Millenial Donor Report, research conducted by the folks at Johnson Grossnickle & Assoc. This online study of nearly 3,000 20-35 year-olds revealed that Millenial donors thrive in online and mobile environments, but they are still driven by personal relationships and human connections.
  • PULL OUT VALUE OF OTHER TYPES OF MEDIUMSEmail - remains #1 driver compared to Sm for donationsSocial Media is NOT the only (nor necessarily the best) tool if fundraising; it is simply one of many options! But social media is going to be our main focus in this workshop.
  • Interact – what are some different types of social media?Have people raise hands if they use itBy show of hands, who has an organizationFacebook TwitterPintrestLinkedinYoutube
  • How messages should be different: ASK WHO HAS NEWSlETTER AND EAMIL LISTSExample – personalizing emailsSocial media – about reaching a broader audience
  • BEST PRACTICES OF GLOBALGIVING
  • 58 to 97% of those people are women, age 25 to 44
  • Different outlets have different purposes and different benefits.
  • Since the title of this presentation is “Getting the Most out of Facebook for Online Fundraising” I think you’ll want me to go straight to talk about messaging for getting donations. But I’m not going to. First, I want to get you to engagement. Interaction with audience – wil you give me money – cant ask this right awayWhat we want to help you do is learn how to engage them (and why it’s important to) in order GROW YOUR FAN BASE and also BRIDGE the gap from engaged fans to donors.
  • I realize that none of that was the sexy stuff, that you’re ready to move on to tangible ideas and not the basics, but a LARGE number of the people who engage with us on Facebook never get to this point, so I’m driving it home. You need to have a plan!
  • These core points are relevant on a meta (big picture) scale – you should be able to answer these questions with any of your messaging, but also on a micro, per-post level, you should be addressing these key points
  • Conversations are different on Twitter (where you are limited to 140 characters) and FacebookThe two mediums use different methods of ranking content – it is harder to get your information seen on Facebook than on Twitter BUT, for GlobalGiving, Facebook is a larger drive of donationsUse calls-to-action to direct behavior(but remember to balance the “give” and “take”) Too many messages can cause less engagementYou can “give back” to your donors by providing information, updates,photos, and stories!Start your own traditionsFor example, a “photo of the week” contest
  • http://tools.blog.globalgiving.org/2011/09/30/facebook-measurement-part-3-of-3/Facebook Metrics VocabularyImpressions: The number of times your post is seen. This includes views on users’ Recent Stories, Top Stories, and visits to Pages.Feedback: The total number of comments and likes on your story divided by the total number of impressions. This is the percentage of people who, after seeing your post, engage in some way with the post.

  • Ask each group how many people they could reach.. Choose largest and ask howFacebook, twitter, blogIdeas: Draw a tree/circlesUse this to create a mailing list
  • Broad and narrow goals: How much would you like to raise this year?How many donors? Recurring donors? Major donors? How many facebook fans do you want? Additional subscribers to your newsletter?
  • Online fundraising doesn’t just happen. You have to be proactive. Make a plan to achieve the goals you’ve set out.Consider strategies that will help you acquire new online donors, renew existing donors, and upgrade past donors to major donors or recurring donors.
  • 15 min – we will share strategies at end and vote on favorites-hand out calendarsProvideGlboal Giving Calendars – Let them map out and decide which holidays to target and when to start communicatingUse: Twitter, Facebook, and Email, and any other resource you do for current partners
  • Ask Audience:What learned?What surprised you?
  • Tell story of foundersOur Vision: Unleash the potential of people around the world to make positive change happen.WHAT DO WE DO? Connect people who are doing good things with donors who can support them.HOW DO WE DO IT? GlobalGiving provides an online space where you can pitch your work to people across the world and interact with donors. (We also provide a lot more! You’ll hear about it later.)
  • Wiring money can cost $50 or more. Because GG disburses so much $ each month, we have a partnership with Fxecute that converts currencies and directs donations to local bank accounts, so you can SAVE on wiring fees!
  • Blog: http://tools.blog.globalgiving.org/External opportunitiesSummaries and slides from past trainingsDetails on matching campaigns and otheropportunitiesGeneral online fundraising tips
  • GlobalGiving has no setup, monthly, or annual fees! We do this because we believe in the power of great ideas that can come from anyone, anywhere, anytime. Therefore, no matter how big or small your organization is, you will have the same opportunity as everyone else to raise funds on our platform.
